Just built up a Salsa Pistola. It's already a collectors item since they are no longer in production :) Haven't seen a whole lot of Pistola around so I thought I would share a few photos of my new buddy for century rides. If anyone else has a few photos of their Pistola I'd be interested to see some other builds. mine runs:

Drivetrain: Full Ultegra 6700
Wheels: Stans Alpha Comp
Tires: Hutchinson Fusion 3 tubeless
Levers: Salsa Flip Offs
Headset: Chris King
Bars: Salsa Short & Shallow
Stem: Thomson
Post: Thomson Setback
Saddle: Brooks

Can't wait till the roads clear so I can start putting the miles on...

Very nice ride. I had one that was stock other than the saddle and wheelset (the stock Mavics were a noodly mess), and it was a great bike. I sold it two weeks ago. Probably one of the nicest steel rides I've owned. I'll miss it for sure, but had to sacrifice some skis & bike stuff to take care of a shredded ankle tendon.

That sucks, that you have to sell off stuff to take care of your health. Health care reform can't come soon enough!

A shame that Salsa got out of the performance road bike market: I guess they weren't selling. I never had a Pistola, but did have a CCC, and still use a Casseroll SS as my main road bike.

Yeah, but that's the way it goes. The bigger issue is that I was hurt on a volunteer job, and they failed to step up, but that is another discussion for another day. I have redundant bikes, so I have means to pay for both bikes and expenses. Part of being responsible.

I think the Salsa roadies will still be around, but I'm betting they will be under another QBP house brand. They can pull that off easily enough I would think.

My Casseroll SS was also my main ride last year, since the bulk of my riding last year was to and from work!

In fact, All City had a steel roadie at FrostBike.
